Like its title character, Mildred Pierce has a beguiling history. First, it appeared as a 1941 James M. Cain novel, now deservedly venerated as a literary noir classic. In 1945, Mildred Pierce became a Warner Brothers film, the vehicle that won Joan Crawford her first Academy Award as Best Actress. This month, it rematerializes on HBO screens as a five-hour mini-series starring Kate Winslet, Evan Rachel Wood, and Guy Pearce. Whether you have HBO or not, this movie tie-in reissue gives readers to immerse themselves in a true genre masterpiece. In paperback and NOOKbook.
